Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Visconti Ragtime Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with its Visconti presentation box, certificate of origina and blotting paper. The pen has been very lightly used and is presented in fantastic condition.
Visconti launched the first Ragtimes in 1991 and this is one of the early examples – the design of the pen is meant to recall the early part of the 1900s, with the name coming from a style of music considered to be the forerunner to Jazz.
This example is crafted from glorious striated celluloid, with green almost grey tones. The trim is gold-plated.
The pen is fitted with a bi-tone steel medium nib. It’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
